Getting Social?

Will Social Networking take the place of working relationships the old fashioned way? Face to face? I don’t think so. Yet, all these online tools (54 plus and 28 ning sites for my companies) let me connect in a number of ways I would never be able to if left to traditional ways to network such as work a room, join chambers and the like.

In a pole down by Gourmet News 83% of the people responding said that they will be expanding the use of their social networking with Facebook, Twitter and YouTube being mentioned specifically. Yet these are all tolls, nothing more, nothing less.

If you’re smart you will use all this wonderful technology to push your business. Letting us keep in touch in a quicker faster way. Having an online presence is now a necessity but it is not going to replace the personal touch that only you can bring to the table.

Larson Notes & Satire: Never underestimate the power of a personal visit or an actual phone call. To your customer’s eyes YOU are the company.
